Attorney Michael Jolic represented a local physician in his quest for permanent residency. The physician has over the course of his career devoted some time to research in the area of heart disease and has several publications and presentations as a result. We identified this client as a good candidate for a National Interest Waiver petition and submitted a formal request to USCIS on December 1, 2021. The National Interest Waiver was granted on July 22, 2022 and we submitted an Application for Adjustment of Status to Permanent Residency on August 24, 2022. On January 9, 2023, we were informed that the application was granted and that this physician was awarded permanent resident status.
